Jeff,

An excellent observation of Jupiter and the exciting South Equatorial Belt (SEB) Disturbance. The SEB Disturbance is an upheaval of material below the jovian atmosphere following a fading of the SEB which occurs approximately every three years. A bright (white) or dark spot appears approximately five degrees preceding the Great Red Spot (GRS) which is then sheared in longitude over a period of approximately eighteen months. This is a very interesting jovian phenomena to follow. I have placed both observations over a dark background. I hope that you like it.

An excellent montage of images showing the development of the SEB Disturbance: http://www.christone...p40/dps2008.pdf

Somewhere are some slides and a video of that disturbance, but where I do not know. With so many photos and drawings, a lot of slides that are too dim to scan I have been trying to select some good ones but to no avail. Maybe a new slide scanner is in order.
